gman

small man(1) front-end for X

Description

Gman is a simple front-end for the manual page system. The most basic job of gman is to build a database for all the man pages and display them (or part of them) on the screen. When user decides to read a man page, gman will launch an external viewer to display the manual page. More than one external viewer windows can be launched at the same time.

The default manual page viewer is a terminal window with the original man(1). It can also launch gv, evince, or a link to a CGI script which utilizes man2html, for viewing manual pages using a web browser.

There is an index search function to look for the man pages that one needs. It's simple, but it's useful.
